NEW BRUNSWICK Saint Johns-based JACQUES WHITFORD, an internationally recognized leader in environmental sciences and engineering, has announced the acquisition of U.S.-based NORTH AMERICAN WETLAND ENGINEERING (NAWE) and ECOCHECK, INC. By joining forces with Jacques Whitford, NAWEs advanced technologies and EcoChecks operational capabilities will now be available to a broader client base.

NAWEs innovations in wetland technology provide high performance and low cost solutions for their clients. In 2002, NAWE established EcoCheck to fill a critical need for quality infrastructure management of their wastewater systems. Engineered wetlands greatly advance the treatment capacity of wetland treatment systems and provide a simple, low cost alternative to challenging wastewater and water management problems. Included in a long list of accomplishments, NAWEs team of experts developed the first insulated engineered wetland solution proven capable of operating year-round in cold weather climates. The team has authored a number of U.S. patents, including several on Forced Bed Aeration wetland treatment reactors.

We have been working with NAWEs team of experts for a number of years, says John Hooker, Jacques Whitford president of U.S. operations. Our teams work extremely well together, making the union of the firms a natural progression.
